Quantum Apostrophe: Satanic_Hamster: No no, I mean, why is that even legal? What's the logic for it, besides financial scams?Are companies that register in the Bahamas to pay no tax also engaging in a scam, or simply using the law?
Evil Canadian: Makes sense to me. In a rational society, they would be allowed to marry and this would be a non-issue./Happy Pride for all those celebrating this weekend.
Resident Muslim: So, what makes the government entitled to that money that is over the 5m? This is money that has already been taxed. What makes the transfer of ownership from me to my kids a transaction that deems taxation?Even worse is the 'gifting' tax if/when I give my kids something expensive.
Huck And Molly Ziegler: Aquapope: This should send teabagger fundies straight crazy. Reducing taxes, on one hand. On the other hand... HOMOS!!!Precisely my thinking. On the one hand the 'baggers would have to applaud the single-minded zealotry to avoid those evil taxes. On the other hand, the men might do icky things in bed and be a bad example for impressionable babies.The difference is 4 percent vs. 15 percent taxation. Is the difference THAT great, considering the hassles of adoption? I mean, I'd be tempted to say to hell with it and pay up, but the couple does have a great chance here to put across a pointed political message.
Bashar and Asma's Infinite Playlist: VTGremlin: You know how you want to be taken seriously? This isn't helping.I thought taxes were evil and doing anything legally possible to avoid them was next to godliness.
ObnoxiousLonghorn: Ok, so, like, where are we going to draw the line with the whole LGBT stuff. Are we stopping at incest? Please let us stop at incest, I don't think I can be any more open minded and accepting./Didn't read the story, just the headline.
EvilEgg: Making any sex they have incest, hence illegal.
Satanic_Hamster: No no, I mean, why is that even legal? What's the logic for it, besides financial scams?
Satanic_Hamster: How can you adopt adults?
ZAZ: This is an old trick.Remember that drunk driver in Florida who adopted his girlfriend? We had a thread about the appeals court decision voiding adoption for lack of notice to interested parties. One of the judges would have disallowed the adoption because you can't adopt your girlfriend. He cited with approval an old New York case that was about gay adoption.
